Thought for the Day – 23 May

St John Baptist de Rossi not only gave his life totally to the care of all the needy – whatever their need might be!
Sick, homeless, poor and needy – by day he devoted himself to the sick and poor in Rome’s hospitals, by night he ministered to those on the street and in shelters.   But he didn’t stop there – he alleviated their bodily sorrows firstly and then he cared for their souls and he exhorted fellow priests to follow his example and to care for all – both body and soul.
Many of us shrink from going to the hospitals from fear of infection or from the sights and smells that await us there.
Courage! We are not in the world to follow our own will and pleasure but to imitate the Lord.

St John Baptist de Rossi, pray for us!

st john baptist de rossi - pray for us




Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
